Nokia fans, if you’ve enjoyed the Finnish company’s offerings as far as software is concerned, such as with the company’s HERE Maps application, you’re in luck because it has been revealed that Nokia’s HERE Maps app will be making its way onto Windows 8. The downside though is that it appears, for now, that the app will be exclusive to Nokia’s Lumia tablet lineup, which at the moment comprises of the Lumia 2520 that was announced last month. However if the rumors are to be believed, we can look forward to a certain Lumia 2020 at MWC 2014 next year.

In any case the Lumia 2520 has yet to be released, but hopefully that will be soon, so for those considering the tablet, you’ll be pleased to learn that HERE Maps will be an exclusive for you guys, at least for the foreseeable future. Given that there are several Windows 8 tablets out there to choose from, undoubtedly this exclusivity is something worth considering when trying to make a selection. Similar to Google Maps where you can use it offline, HERE Maps allows the user to do the same thing where you can download maps ahead of time for the places you are planning to go. If you want to see HERE Maps on the Lumia 2520, be sure to check out the video above for the details.
